MySQL dump file

Firebird-to-MySQL converter allows users to migrate Firebird database into MySQL format even when there is no connection to MySQL server available. Following this way, the program converts Firebird data into a local MySQL dump file instead of migrating it to MySQL server directly. The resulting file contains MySQL statements to create all tables and to fill them with the data. Click here to learn how to import dump file into MySQL database.

Quick Launch

Once you stored conversion settings into profile you can run the program in Quick Launch mode. Just launch Windows Explorer and double-click on the profile description (.f2s) file with left mouse button. This will cause Firebird-to-MySQL wizard to launch conversion loading the necessary settings from the specified profile. Then you will be taken right to the screen with progress of conversion without entering all conversion settings.


Firebird-to-MySQL implements synchronization as combination of insert Firebird records that are missing in MySQL table and update existing MySQL records with Firebird data. For synchronization purpose source and destination tables must have identical structures and primary key or unique index defined.
